Really really good! I made these for dinner tonight on DH homemade Italian bread with some potato wedges and salad on the side. I changed it slightly by not baking the bread slices first and spreading a dijon/mayo mixture over them b4 topping with the onion and cheese. I then placed them under the broiler to let the cheese melt. I love the addion of the caraway seeds. They were the perfect compliment to the cheese and onion. This was a great, easy weeknight meal that we enjoyed. Mike didn't even mention the lack of meat ;-) These would also be perfect for entertaining (easy enough for that unexpected guest). I picture serving them b4 on a platter b4 going to the table for dinner, or for a cocktail party with a glass of white wine. Thanks for posting this.
I changed this into grilled cheese sandwich(es) instead of crostini. I cooked down the onion until it was fully caramelized, which took about 30 minutes. I actually forgot about the garlic but didn't miss it. Once the onion was cooked, I used it in a grilled cheese with the Jarlsberg. After toasting, I added a squirt of spicy brown mustard to add to the Bavarian flavors. This was delicious with some pasta salad on the side for an easy dinner. Thanks for sharing!
